Description

I intend to make reusable bags each year for holiday gifts but when it comes down to the wire I'm usually in a flurry of sewing gifts and the handmade bags never happen.  Not this year! I'm starting my stash of bags now with the Pretty in Patchwork Holidays Sew Along so I'll have a nice stash to pull out in December!  So fun to play with a bit of Christmas Fabric without the rush of needing to get something done quickly.  This first one took me a few hours but that was with *a lot* of interruptions.  I'm sure others will go more quickly since I know the pattern now.

First up: Wide stripe pattern from Pretty in Patchwork Holidays with Essex yarn dyed linen and Riley Blake Holly Jolly print.


More to come!

That turned out so cute! I cant wait to start making mine...my materials will be here on Wednesday.

Great bag and idea...I stocked up on holiday fabric so I can do the same we shall see if I pull it off;-)

Rebecca

True Start now! I seriously have had the best intentions for the past several years (including fabric) and that's one of the first things to go when I'm down to the wire.

Rebecca

Skynme Yay! I'm glad we didn't scare you off after last month's quilt project. smile

Great idea to make some holiday themed. I have a lot of Kate Spain Joy left from some projects last year, so I think I'll try to use some here in addition to my Comma idea.

LOL No, I'm hooked but I do still have to finish that quilt. I am procrastinating hoping I wake up one morning and it has been magically basted, quilted, and binded for me.

Love this! You are inspiring me to get working on my sew along projects. I've been watching everyone else participate but my good intentions haven't gotten me very far yet. Fingers are crossed that May will be a month of some Pretty in Patchwork Holiday Sew Along for me! Thanks for the inspiration!! Great bag!
